“The Faust Syndrome” is a perfect read for all fans of dark fic genre. It’s haunting, atmospheric, disturbing just enough to deliver its message about the corruption of a human soul and how it may affect one’s decision and their entire life’s course. The idea of selling one’s soul to a demonic power was done before but the author definitely takes a fresh and very interesting take on it.

Great story with exceptional writing.

Jay has been writing for almost as long as he has been reading. He learned how to structure a good story through several sources. His parents were both good storytellers. Growing up in a modern home without television, he honed his imagination on old radio shows and TV-on-stereo.

The books he learned the most from were Robert E. Howard's "Conan" saga and Edgar Rice Burroughs' "John Carter Of Mars"
